Here are my picks for the semis:

LA V RSL: Just have a feeling LA will win this. Donovan and Keane show up in the biggest games. I think Zardes will play a big role as well.

Seattle V Portland: As much as I hate to say it I think Portland will win. With Yedlin likely out, that creates a huge hole offensively on the right for Seattle. Nagbe is my player to watch. Will Seattle ax Schmid if they fail? hard to know.

NE V KC: I am going with the upset here with New England. New England just have the players to score goals. While KC still struggles with offensive output. KC may dominate possession, but they lack a true goal scorer still. And New England is set up well to counter KC.

NY V Houston: Going with NY. NY are just in a good groove offensively and Defensively. Mike Petke has the team believing in themselves this year.

I agree with all your picks except NE. I hope your right but KC has been our one team we cant beat. They have a huge pyschological advantage. If the first leg is 0-0 or they score first the doubts will creep back in. Not sure if the young guns are ready to overcome a 1st leg loss. Ill keep my fingers crossed though

So expect to see crappy NFL lines Saturday in the Seattle V Portland game.

Such a shame that this ownership group is not proactively looking to find a site where they can build their own SSS stadium.

I think we'll see Houston vs KC in the EC Final but I agree with LA vs Portland in the WC Final.
